Format: Mass Market Paperback
Richard Rolle Of Hampole was an English religious writer and Bible translator. He left the University of Oxford without a degree, dissatisfied with the subjects of study, and became a hermit. neither a priest nor a monk but a simple layman. Writing in the vernacular (Middle English) for the sake of women readers, he exalted the contemplative life.

Rolle correctly noted that kundalini cultivation was involved with cultivating mental emptiness.

Richard's recorded the words of a woman who told him, "You have nothing except a beautiful face and beautiful talk! You have no performance!" shows the misunderstandings which those called to eremitic life must endure…

He had no patience with what led to such popular arguments of the day as whether the sacrament of the Eucharist was defiled if consumed by a mouse or exactly what functions the "spiritual bodies" of angels had. Unfortunately, Richard's irritation with others on any level seems to have led to his having no use for any of their thoughts and writings.

It seems no accident that Richard quoted the Rite for the Consecration of Virgins, which dates from the 4th century - though this rite was reserved to women. St. Thomas Aquinas referred to such consecration as the means to "aureolæ" - particular rewards added to the essential happiness of eternity: "laurel wreaths," crowning three conspicuous victories, and three special points of resemblance to Christ: the victory over the flesh in virginity, the victory over the world in martyrdom, and the victory over the devil in the preaching of the truth. (The women who received this rite, in the early centuries, were frequently deaconesses - by the 14th century, their "preaching" would have been by example.

HASH(0x9269acf8) out of 5 stars Must read classic of Christian spiritualism. 21 Dec. 1997
By lyonais@msn.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Whether your interest in this title stems from an interest in medieval literature or Christian mysticsm, this book is a must. It is part of the flowering of thought which occurred in Europe 1250-1400 which changed the way we think about the relationship between Man and God. It is a guide to a personal search for an understanding of God.
HASH(0x94b061a4) out of 5 stars The content is great but the translation is difficult to read 14 July 2016

The content is not the problem but the translation of it here. I would suggest finding a translation which is reader friendly. This one made a great work very painful reading.
